jwallis, did you get a response from maylinglai1? I haven't noticed her participating in the community lately. Possibly I have given you dead end directions in securing first hand assistance from her. Sorry!
Jwallis....how long are you placing your CR trip on hold? You are entering the "wet" season (or "green" season as the Ticos call it), so you can expect regular (as in daily) and sometimes intense and prolonged periods of rain. It's still a great place with friendly peopleto visit.....just take a poncho if you are heading there before November!
